    No idea. Several people have reported this, but the thing doesn’t have any redirects I know of. I can’t reproduce it.

    The url which is included in a tweet can be of ‘/?p=123456’ format or long URL. I guess there’s some htaccess or other redirection going on because of that.

    Don’t know what is causing it, but some installations of this plugins are using ‘/?p=123456’ in tweets while they have a permalink structure for normal post like /%post_id%/%postname%/ And other installations are only inluding the long url’s in the tweet. Very strange.

    The content of the tweet wouldn’t cause that error to appear. That really has nothing to do with that error at all, actually.

    If you want to use a shortlink in your tweets, like wp.me, then you can install JetPack instead. The shortlink code built into Jetpack will automatically get used by STC. The WP-Bitly plugin works with it as well.

    Aha, thanks Otto! Makes sence 🙂

    problems occurs on other account as well. same hosting service :((((

    used to work

    Hi Otto,

    same problem occurs here. I successfully installed your SFC plugin, though the twitter one does return the same error.

    I run self-hosted web with WP 3.3.1.

    What kind of info would you need to help you analyze the problem?

    Thanks,

    Marek

    Possible related issue, I found this whilst working on some code to process RSS feeds.

    I have the same problem, can you explain to me what do I have to do because I got confused.

    The solution to my problem is to download the latest class-http.php file. I would warn though that this is patching your core wordpress files so don’t do this unless you are certain there is no other fix. I’d suggest doing this on a test site if you can.

    Firstly make a backup of your files, e.g. wp-includes/class-http.php

    Open the following link and scroll to the bottom

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-includes/class-http.php?rev=20399

    there is a link to download as txt. Click that and save to a suitable location, upload that to wp-includes, overwriting the existing file.

    Check your site is still working as expected and that the issue is fixed.

    I’m still getting the ‘RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: Too many redirects.’

    I’ve tried replacing the ‘class-http.php’ file, but that results in a STC: ‘WP HTTP Error: malformed’ error.

    …does this shed any further light ?
